X Y 5
xy = 5 linear equations? If not, give reasons.
I don't understand how to solve this problem. Help? :]
The form of the linear equation is:
y = a x + b where a and b are linear constant because all the powers of the variable (ie x, y) are one. In other words, y is the first power and x is also the first power.
xy = 5 is equal to y = 5 / x and is not a linear equation, since the power of x is negative, not a
Another way to explain this is that the graph of linear equations is a straight line, but the graph of y = 5 / x is a hyperbola.
Solve for y: y = 5 / x.
Since the linear equation must be in the form of y = mx + b,
xy = 5 is not a linear equation.
xy = 5 is actually a parallel hyperbola equation.
Not this. x = 5 / h ...
If x = 0 is not specified, then a symbol is ...
The graph of the equation is not linear ...
